Foods from Childhood: Mamma B’s Quick-n-Easy Chocolate Pie

Hello, family and friends! My Mamma’s Apple Pie recipe is still coming soon. I keep forgetting to grab my hand-written cookbook to get it. I have yet to memorize it.

To make up for it, I am featuring my Mamma B’s Quick-n-Easy Chocolate Pie recipe. It is partially premade, so that cuts down on time and difficulty. It is tagged “baked-goods,” but it is actually a “no-bake” recipe. It’s even more simple! My Mother-in-Law is one smart lady.

Mamma B’s Quick-n-Easy Chocolate Pie
Makes 1 pie, serving sizes vary according to taste

Ingredients:

  • 1 premade chocolate-crumb pie crust
  • 1 box chocolate pudding mix, NON-instant (not the teeny box)
  • 1 carton chocolate soy milk (household has lactose-intolerant people, and this actually makes the pie tastier)
  • Whipped Topping of your choice (optional)

Directions:

  1. Read the directions on the chocolate pudding package. whether you use the microwave or stovetop is up to you, both work well.
  2. Follow the cooking directions on the chocolate pudding package, using the chocolate soy milk instead of regular milk.
  3. Take the packaging off the premade crust, then pour the hot pudding into the crust.
  4. Refrigerate the pie until the pudding is completely cool. This will likely take a few hours. (We like to put the clear packaging back on the pie, upside-down, to keep it safe in the fridge.)
  5. Cut, top with whipped topping if you wish, serve, and enjoy your pie!

For Variety:
Feel free to use one of the following, or one of your own ideas to change-it-up!

  • Bananas! Layer bananas and the chocolate pudding.
  • Mint add as an extract or use mint-flavored chips.
  • More Chocolate! Feel free to add chocolate chunks or chips to add texture and, of course, more chocolate.

And there you have it! I hope you enjoy this recipe, which is definitely a wonderful “Pie Season” treat!
